Golf Swing Tips

To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

8.6 17 Inches Past Is Key

Go back to what I said a few pages ago about there being an optimum putting speed for every putt. Your next questions probably are: (1) What is this optimum speed? and (2) How do you learn to roll your putts at that speed?

Let’s start with finding it. I’ve tested for optimum speeds on different putts and different greens all around the country. Using the True Roller I’ve found the line and speed that make the highest percentage of putts then covered the hole (as shown in Figure 8.6.1) rolled more putts at that speed and measured how far these optimum speed putts roll past the hole. What does measuring this distance do? It produces a quantifiable and visual result that you can use to evaluate the speed of your putts on any green anywhere relative to the optimum speed that has the best chance of holing putts.

It’s important to note here that I’m referring not to a speed but a distance past the hole. As I mentioned earlier golfers don’t relate to speeds (velocities) which change from green to green depending on the conditions anyway. But what does not change (at least not very much) is the distance the optimum speed putts roll past the hole which is in a general way a measure of how fast the ball was rolling when it reached the cup after passing through the lumpy donut. That distance is 17 inches. Years of experiments have shown me that the optimum speed for making putts is one that would if the hole were covered or missed roll the ball 17 inches past the back edge. That extra 17 inches of speed is enough to keep the maximum percentage of putts on line through the lumpy donut yet not so fast they won’t stay in the hole when they hit it.

4.3 Defining Speed

Putt Speed

The velocity with which a ball moves along the green can be referred to in several ways. Some golfers refer to this as the rolling speed or speed of the putt. Some golfers talk about the pace of a putt while others talk about how fast a putt is moving. It would be nice if we all could mean and understand the same thing when referring to speed.

Technically the speed of a putt can be described and measured in quantitative terms as the velocity of motion (in units of inches or feet per second) in a given direction and the decay or decrease of velocity (the velocity profile) as the ball rolls to a stop. However since most golfers don’t think in technical terms on or off the course the actual velocity of a putt at any instant is neither very meaningful nor useful. As a result golfers talk about the speed of their putts as being too fast too slow or just about right as they approach the hole.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 61

But if you want to learn more about controlling your putting speed and making more putts you need to know more about speed than that. In fact you need to know how the rolling speed of your putts compares to their perfect or optimum speed around the hole. The speed of a putt depends on its length how fast it started where it is along its ball track how fast the green surface is and the slope (up down or sidehill) it is rolling on. For every putt there is an optimum speed that will optimize the percentage of putts that would both hit and stay in the hole. Therefore in this book as in my Scoring Game Schools we refer to a putt’s speed (while imagining its ball track) as how it relates to the optimum speed it should or could be rolling. For example as you can see in Figure 4.3.1 the left putt’s speed was too much as compared to the right putt’s speed which was virtually perfect. A detailed discussion of putting speed and optimum-speed ball tracks is in Chapter 7.

The wrists have completed their roll, and the left elbow is close the body.Swinging around the spine. The wrists have completed the roll and now the forearms are crossing. The follow through is almost complete. If you notice, the triangle is still in place, proving that you are connected throughout the entire swing.
